Police Search OKC Motel For Video Evidence Of Saunders Torture
OKLAHOMA CITY - An affidavit for search warrant filed in Oklahoma County District Court Tuesday gives details into the torture and murder of Carina Saunders.
Within the warrant, Bethany investigators report that they have interviewed more than 80 witnesses and have followed up on hundreds of leads in the case. According to the affidavit, various sources say there is video evidence of the killing of Saunders, but to date, no one in law enforcement has been able to confirm the existence of the video.
Police located a woman they believe may have possession of the video at Studio Six Motel at 3850 S. Prospect. That woman led police to a motel room.
A return inventory of a search warrant requested for the property shows that police have seized two cameras, a zip drive, four cell phones, an SD card, a Toshiba laptop computer, and meth and drug paraphernalia.
Officers arrested Luis Ruiz on July 5 for Saunders' murder. Five other men could also be facing charges in connection to the murder. Four of the men -- Alejandro Rojas, Jimmy Lee Massey, Francisco Gomez, and Luis Arturo Soto -- are currently in jail on drug-related charges.
